The outlaw's prayer - epic country hits 1971-1981 - Johnny Paycheck

The outlaw's prayer - epic country hits 1971-1981
In country music’s roster of great honky tonk singers, Johnny Paycheck is without doubt one of the greatest. In 1977 he enjoyed his only country chart No.1 with the classic novelty, ‘Take This Job And Shove It’ a record so huge all across America it inspired scores of examples of industrial action, became an anthem for America’s blue collar workforce and inspired a movie of the same title.

In all he accumulated sixty country chart hits between 1965 and 1989 and placed twenty albums on the country LP charts between 1966 and 1987. An achievement that places him within the top 100 country performers of all time.

Collected on this CD are 26 country hits he enjoyed on Epic Records between 1971 and 1981.

Press:-

"A true country music renegade whose life and times are best described by the song I’m The Only Hell (Mama Ever Raised), the late Johnny Paycheck is still held in high-esteem by many veteran country music fans." Alan Cackett (Maverick - September/October 2012)

Time For Another / No Strings EXPANDED EDITION
Ace was formed in December 1972 in Sheffield as 'Ace Flash and the Dynamos', but this name was quickly abbreviated to just Ace. The members were assembled from various other professional bands, and were all competent musicians.

Carrack and Comer had previously played with Warm Dust, and King with Mighty Baby, whose antecedents were the 1960s band The Action. Before the recording of their debut album, Five-A-Side, ex-Bees Make Honey drummer Fran Byrne replaced Witherington. The single "How Long?" (a song about one of the members leaving for another group) was taken from this record, and was a significant chart success, achieving a Top 20 place in the UK Singles Chart, and reaching number three in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. 

These reissues of the long out of print albums come with a new updated booklet and notes by Michael Heatley and contains unreleased on CD BBC sessions from the time.
